Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
Infinidat has developed a storage platform that provides unique simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and extensibility that enhances the business value of large-scale OpenStack environments. The InfiniBox® platform is a pre-integrated solution that scales to multiple petabytes of effective capacity in a single 42U rack. The platform’s innovative combination of DRAM, flash, and capacity-optimized disk, delivers tuning-free, high performance for consolidated mixed workloads, including object/Swift, file/Manila, and block/Cinder. These factors combine to cut direct and indirect costs associated with large-scale OpenStack infrastructures, even versus “build-it-yourself” solutions. InfiniBox delivers seven nines (99.99999%) of availability without resorting to expensive replicas or slow erasure codes for data protection. Operations teams appreciate our delivery model designed to easily drop into workflows at all levels of the stack, including native Cinder integration, Ansible automation pl
Databases represent the backbone of most organizations. And Oracle databases in particular have become the mainstream data repository for most mission-critical environments. Some of the largest companies and organizations in the world rely on Oracle databases to store their most important data. The biggest challenge organizations face relative to an Oracle database is to maintain these databases at optimum performance and reliability without breaking the bank. This paper discusses the storage capabilities customers should consider when choosing storage to support an Oracle database environment.
Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h
Das Speicher-Array InfiniBox® für Unternehmensanwendungen bietet höhere Performance als reine Flash-Lösungen, hohe Verfügbarkeit und Multi-Petabyte-Skalierbarkeit für Aufgaben mit gemischten Anwendungen. Zero-Impact-Snapshots und Aktiv/Aktiv-Replizierung sorgen für enorm verbesserte Business-Agilität, und FIPS-validierte Verschlüsselung für ruhende Daten macht das sichere Löschen von nicht mehr benötigten Arrays überflüssig. Mit InfiniBox können IT-Organisationen in Unternehmen sowie Anbieter von Cloud-Diensten ihre Service-Level-Ziele übertreffen und gleichzeitig Kosten und Komplexität ihrer Speicherumgebung im Petabyte-Maßstab reduzieren.
Auch nach jahrzehntelangen Fortschritten in Industrie und Technik existiert immer noch keine universelle integrierte Storage-Lösung, die das Risiko verringern, die Profi tabilität sichern, die Komplexität beseitigen und sich nahtlos in die Betriebs- und Verwaltungsprozesse der Unternehmen für Daten in großem Maßstab einfügen können.
Zur Erreichung dieser Ziele gibt es Fähigkeiten, um optimale Ergebnisse zu möglichst niedrigen Kosten zu erreichen. Diese Fähigkeiten umfassen Verfügbarkeit, Zuverlässigkeit, Performance, Datendichte, Managementfähigkeit und Integration in Anwendungs-Ökosysteme.
Das vorliegende White Paper skizziert ein besseres Konzept für die Speicherung von Daten in großem Maßstab, so dass diese Probleme nicht nur heute, sondern auch in Zukunft gelöst werden.
La transformation numérique est certes un levier de business, mais elle induit une augmentation de la demande de capacité de stockage et de performance. Cette augmentation de la demande oblige les organisations IT à réexaminer leur stratégie de stockage de données étant donné que la croissance de la capacité coïncide diffi cilement avec un budget IT de plus en plus serré. Pour accompagner la croissance des aff aires et demeurer compétitifs sur le marché numérique mondial, les DSI sont de plus en plus tenus d’en faire plus avec moins, tout en cherchant à améliorer la performance et la disponibilité.
Même après des décennies d’avancées de l’industrie et de progrès technologiques, il n’existe pas encore de solution de stockage intégrée et universelle capable de réduire les risques, de favoriser la rentabilité, d’éliminer la complexité et de s’intégrer en toute transparence aux opérations et processus de gestion des données à grande échelle.
Pour tenir ces objectifs, il faut des fonctionnalités permettant d’atteindre les meilleurs résultats au meilleur coût., Ces fonctionnalités incluent la disponibilité, la fi abilité, la performance, la densité, la facilité de gestion et l’’intégration de l’écosystème applicatif.
Ce livre blanc propose une nouvelle vision du stockage de données à grande échelle, de façon à régler les problèmes aujourd’hui et dans le futur.
La baie de stockage d’entreprise lnfiniBox® délivre des performances supérieures à la technologie tout-Flash, de hauts niveaux de disponibilité et une évolutivité de plusieurs pétaoctets pour des charges applicatives mixtes. Des instantanés zéro impact et une réplication active/active améliorent nettement l’agilité, tandis que le chiffrement des données au repos validé FlPS élimine la nécessité d’effacer les baies déclassées. Avec InfiniBox, les services IT des entreprises et les fournisseurs de services cloud surpassent les objectifs de niveau de service tout en réduisant le coût et la complexité de leurs opérations de stockage de l’ordre du pétaoctet.

Performance evaluation is coming of age. Once a narrow, back office role focused solely on
crunching returns, it has become ever more integrated into the DNA of investment firms. Both
internally and externally, performance evaluation adds value, helping senior management make
key judgement calls where the difference between the right solution and the wrong solution is the
difference between growth or decline. The performance analyst of the future will provide valuable
input into nearly every area of an investment firm.
What began as a mathematical task—calculating investment returns—is morphing into something
much broader. The objective of performance evaluation today is determining what is behind the
return being analyzed. What were the key drivers—allocation or selection? What risk was taken to
achieve the return? Was it skill, or was it luck, that produced the return?

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs.
But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.
